With age comes changes to just about every part of your body, including your breasts. Whether pregnancy and breastfeeding led to deflation or sagging or the journey to weight loss left your curves a little less than you desire, breast rejuvenation is one of the most common cosmetic procedures.
When women think about breast rejuvenation, they often assume breast implants and augmentation, however, bigger breasts are not always the desired goal. A breast lift is another option. But how do you know which form of breast rejuvenation is right for you?
Breast Augmentation with Breast Implants
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure designed to increase breast volume through the placement of saline or silicone breast implants. A breast augmentation can help improve the size, volume, and shape of your existing breasts, giving you the shape and body contouring you are looking for.
If you are happy with your breast size and volume, but notice your breasts aren’t as perky as they used to be, a breast lift may be the ideal option. As we age or go through weight loss, the skin begins to lose elasticity and isn’t able to bounce back like it used to. This can lead to sagging breasts that may lose shape. You may notice your breasts appear flat or elongated and your nipples point downward.
A breast lift is a procedure that removes excess skin and reshapes the breast, giving it a more lifted appearance. In addition, a breast lift will relocate the nipples to a more central position on the breast, creating a more youthful appearance.
Combining Both Procedures
But what happens when you want more volume but are also experiencing breast sagging? Combining breast augmentation with a breast lift is a common combination procedure that allows you to boost your breast volume while also lifting your breasts to a more youthful position, helping you achieve your body contouring goals.
